IV Therapy Treatments and Protocols
Wouldn’t it be great if you could find a treatment that was natural and used your body’s own chemistry and ability to use nutrients to heal? Well, now you’ve found it! IV therapy is a powerful, effective treatment option for many conditions, as well as a way to battle aging and detox the body.
IV therapy works by providing your body with a direct infusion of nutrients. Nutrients taken intravenously bypass the digestive system so that they can go to work directly in your body. This makes IV therapy an incredible solution over oral supplement or simply trying to receive all the nutrients you need through your diet. Some treatment options like High Dose Vitamin C would be impossible to receive by food alone because of the high concentration of nutrients provided.
Through IV therapy, Niki Young, N.D. of Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center provides precise and individualized doses of the nutrients patients need to feel healthy and happy.
Powerful, high-quality nutrients are used in customized formulas based on the latest research to safely and effectively address patients’ specific health concerns and nutritional deficiencies. After an IV therapy treatment, patients report feeling calm, focused, energized and hydrated.
IV Therapy offered at Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center
The human body needs vitamin B-12 to make red blood cells, nerves, DNA, and carry out other functions. This makes it good for brain health, immune support, nerve health, and energy. The average adult should get 2.4 micro-grams a day. Like most vitamins, B-12 can’t be made by the body. Instead, it must be received in the form of food or supplements.
- Vitamin B6
B6 supports neurotransmitter synthesis, is anti-inflammatory, and is antagonized by birth control pills. It is useful for mood disorders such as depression, as well as dementia, PMS, skin disorders and neuropathy.
- Vitamin B5
B5 supports good adrenal health, production of energy from foods, and is useful for people with arthritis, allergies, acne and other skin problems; it is also useful for sexual endurance.
- B-100 Complex
B Vitamins serve many purposes in our bodies including energy production (reduces fatigue) and is especially important if there is malabsorption or colitis. B-Complex blends very well and synergizes with B12 injections.
- Folic Acid
Dr. Young uses methylfolate which is the biologically active form. Some people are unable to convert folic acid into its active form in the body. Folic acid can prevent or treat a variety of conditions like cardiovascular health, autism, depression, neurological symptoms such as restless leg and migraines, and decreases risk of certain birth defects. Certain medications like oral contraceptives, methotrexate, fluoxetine, and certain anticonvulsants interfere with the absorption leading to a folate deficiency.
- MIC – Methionine and Choline
These amino acids support brain function and the synthesis of neurotransmitters, amino acids and glutathione (the body’s most detoxifying molecule), as well as proper hormone metabolism. This blend is effective for the treatment of many mood disorders and enhances the body’s ability to detoxify, particularly preventing excess fat build up in the liver, leading to lower cholesterol levels.
- Vitamin D-3
Helps maintain good health and has been shown to be beneficial in helping to: support bone health, prevent fractures, help with back pain, regulate hormones and alleviate some symptoms of depression. It also contains anti-cancer benefits, supporting immune system issues, and lowering the risk of colon, breast, and prostate cancer. Vitamin D-3 injections are better absorbed by the body since they go directly into the blood stream.
